She gets dumped by her boyfriend and loses her job in one day. She starts thinking the list might be getting in her way. She goes to do everything that is on her list. The first thing she does lands her in Brooklyn in an unknown apartment. Ends up the apartment belongs to Richard the owner of an online magazine that wants to hire Blair. Blair takes the job and fights her attraction for her commitment-phobe boss. Denying the list takes her on adventures that she never dreamed possible.
In an Oyster Shell – A wonderful charming read that’s clean. I highly recommend this book.
The Pearls – I really liked the concept of this book. I used to play the I never game a lot in college. So turning that into a book was really fun for me. I like that Blair had her list and went against it to do things she never had. I really like that the author brought the I never game into the plot. It was appropriate to the plot and really fun. The concept was well-conceived and well executed.
The characters were distinctive and well-developed. Blair was a sweet character with a little bit of edge. She had great development through the story. Richard was a nice compliment to Blair. He challenged Blair to grow. Richard grew as well and the end result is a great romance. The supporting characters added a nice depth to the story line.
The romance was edgy but sweet. It was a romance that lasted the book. The romance grew over the span of the book. So it wasn’t an instant love. The tension throughout the book kept things interesting.
The Sand – It was a really good book I wish there were more like it!
